    • SKU #410562

    "93-94 Points, Zachys Buying Team: “The Second Label of the iconic Pomerol producer Vieux Château Certan is the La Gravette de Certan, named after a parcel of vines bought by the Thienpont family back in 1946. The quality at Vieux Château Certan has improved so much over the past decade that Robert Parker previously posted this quote from Alexandre Thienpont ""La Gravette de Certan is better in 2010 than many of the vintages of Vieux Château Certan produced in the 1970s."" Well, good news, 2014 follows suit here and should not be missed! Expect to find notes of sweet black cherries and mulberries matched with hints of cedar, tobacco and licorice."""

    Vieux Chateau Certan 2001 (1.5L)

    • 93 WA
    • 94 NM
    • SKU #160224

    93 Points; Robert Parker; The Wine Advocate: "A brilliant effort from Alexandre Thienpont; this blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc is a deep purple-colored; fleshy; layered effort offering a sweet nose of creosote; incense; Christmas spices; plenty of red and black fruits; and hints of licorice as well as new oak. Rich; medium to full-bodied; with tremendous purity in addition to nobility; give it two more years of cellaring and drink it over the next following 15-18 years." 6/04 #153. . 94 Points; Neal Martin; Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: Tasted at the Bipin Desai’s VCC vertical in Los Angeles. Juxtaposing this against the millennial VCC; this actually has more precision and clarity on the nose (something of a trait with Pomerol ‘01s.) Blueberries; cassis; violets; limestone and a hint of tar – it is an enticing bouquet. The palate does not disappoint with blackberry; black olive; wonderful definition with great mineralite and poise. A feminine foil to the ‘00; this is an exquisite wine that will drink earlier than others but has the balance and depth to suggest it will be a long runner. For now; it is just completing its first lap. Drink 2012-2030+. Tasted November 2008." 6/13 Wine Journal

    97 Points; James Suckling: "This begins with a sexy roasted fruit character on the nose; then opens up to hints of spice; chocolate; wet earth; and dried flowers. The palate is incredible; with a concentration that builds; and a finish that remains agile and racy. Very defined and beautiful wine with great length and freshness. This still needs some time in the bottle. Pull the cork in 2018." 5/12. . 95 Points; Robert Parker; The Wine Advocate: "A stunning effort from Alexander Thienpont; the 2005 Vieux Chateau Certan (a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc) reveals an inky/blue/purple color along with a rich; sumptuous perfume of black olives; lavender; roasted herbs; licorice; pain grille; and oodles of truffles as well as creme de cassis. In the mouth; hints of chocolate and charcoal also make an appearance along with good acidity; fabulous purity; and a full-bodied; powerful mouthfeel. In keeping with the style of this terroir; the wine is reserved and restrained; but deep. It should develop magnificently; and age for 30-40 years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2035." 4/08

    "The aromas of this are so gorgeous; with blackberries; black cherries and wet earth. Full body with super-fine tannins and bright acidity. A firm; tightly structured young red with orange peel and other citrus fruit. This is so focused and straight...96" JS 02/14. . . . . "Very deep and broad for the vintage; this sports ample toast and loam notes; showing remarkable polish and heft. Offers a fleshy feel through the finish...94" WS 01/15. . . . "Made in a big; bold style with 13.6% natural alcohol; it reveals a stunning perfume of graphite; mulberries; black currants; kirsch; licorice and forest floor. This full-bodied; dense Pomerol transcends the overall vintage character. Thienpont compared the style of the 2011 with their 2000; but with more density to its core because of the extremely low yields. Only 60% of the crop made it into this cuvee. It will need 5-8 years of cellaring; and should still be intact and drinking beautifully at age 30...94-96" WA 04/12

    97-100 Points; Antonio Galloni; Vinous: "The 2016 Vieux Château Certan is a wine of extraordinary beauty. Rich; seamless and voluptuous in the glass; it exudes sensuality in all of its dimensions. Tasted as a hypothetical blend; the 2016 is less expressive than the separate lots were when I tasted them a few months ago. A rush of dark cherry; inky blue/purplish fruit; crushed rocks; lavender and rose petal infuses the creamy; voluptuous finish. The 2016 manages to be dense and rich; but with no excess weight. It is quite simply a remarkable wine." 4/17. . 98-99 Points; James Suckling: "The balance and finesse to this wine are really beautiful with ultra-fine tannins and beautiful fruit. It's full and structured yet so long and intense. It's a wine that seduces you with every sip - already. Great selection here. Quite simply turbocharged at the end." 4/17. . 95-97 Points; Neal Martin; Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Vieux Chateau Certan is a blend of 85% Merlot; 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon that was picked at 40.50 hectoliters per hectare; in three stages of picking: 3-7; 10-11 and 17-18 October. It has a high IPT of 82 and a pH of 3.77. It has a very refined bouquet with blackberry; briary and morello cherries that are tightly wound at first; but open gradually with aeration. The Merlot is fully in control aromatically; this is not a VCC governed by the Cabernet Franc this year; consistent with the 2016 vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. There is plenty of dark berry fruit laced with hints of earl grey and bay leaf; a complex and cerebral Pomerol with a long; precise and (to put it banally) delicious finish. This is another outstanding wine from Alexandre and Guillaume Thienpont." 4/17 #230
